Spin Cycle's Gretchen and Ginny Marie gave the following challenge this week:
"Instead of the usual resolution thing, Ginny and I would like you to choose a word for 2014. Think of all you want and need for the upcoming year and distill it down to just one word that can guide you for the year. And then share it with us all.
And as an added challenge...Try creating an acrostic poem of your word."
Simple enough, right? Wrong. Word, as some hiphop and others once said! I have spent many waking hours and some dreams at night trying to distill my hopes, dreams, fears and whatevers for the upcoming year into one word. The more I thought the more I realized I really did not have a desire to do much more than just zone out. (Two words, won't work) I toyed with the word 'rebound'. Even made up the little acrostic poem to go with it. I had done an acrostic poem before not knowing that was what I was doing. But I digress.
Rebound just did not quite fit my emotional state. Having been a second string basket ball person in high school, rebounding this whole next year seemed to be, well frankly, just too much work. You know all that running and elbowing and wrestling for the ball. Nope, I am just too worn down from the last two years of multiple surgeries, multiple family deaths, house repairs, hospital stays, trips, elder care, house and garden staging, packing, moving, unpacking, more trips and of course downsizing. There are still boxes in storage to be unpacked. Still items to be taken to consignment or donation places. So rebound is not the word.
Next was renew or revive. Close but still not a fit. I
This morning I was going through my first of the day rituals. The rituals include checking facebook friends, family and inspirational posts. There in Dwight's post The Word leapt through the computer screen into my soul. Dwight was noting how it was raining today in Springfield. Warmer temperatures combined with the rain would quickly melt the snow from the landscape. The snow was initially very beautiful giving the world a clean, new look. Time, snow plows, sleds and life had made the white beauty descend into drabness. The change of temperature and refreshing rain. Stop the presses, that's the word, Refresh.
give new strength or energy to; reinvigorate.
This year my word is Refresh.
To share your one word for the year or just to see others' words touch this word and you will be welcomed into The Spin Cycle!
